Our Relationship with Social Networking Sites
We may create interfaces that allow you to connect with social networking services such as Facebook and Twitter (“SNS”) through our Site and Services. We work with the SNS’s application protocol interface (better known as their developer API) in a way that allows you to authorize us to access your account on that SNS on your behalf. In order to provide this authorization, you do not provide us with your user name or password to the SNS, but you will need to log-in to that SNS directly through our Site. Once authorized by you, the SNS provides us a token that allows the SNS to recognize us when we ask, on your behalf, for access to your account information or to post information. For example, when you click “Connect” to grant us access to your Facebook account, we will import your name and other information from Facebook. Similarly, when you click “Like”, we will post the applicable information to your Facebook account. You can revoke our access to any SNS at any time by amending the appropriate settings from within your account settings on the applicable SNS.
